: the president says there's not going to be a fight over the debt ceiling we know the money has running out at this point and they have to do something and republicans have held it out during the fiscal cliff negotiations as the next best opportunity to negotiate and democrats need their votes to get that ceiling raised, but the white house says we're not going to negotiate and there's not going to be a fight. >> that's not what the republican said is saying. john boehner, speaker boehner after not getting half of his caucus, having to depend on democrats for the fiscal cliff vote is now saying that we gave in on taxes, now it's time for spending cuts, serious entitlement reforms, which is where, you know, the the bulk of our long-term fiscal problems are. and this is going to be used, the debt ceiling is going to be used to get cuts. mitch mcconnell has said something similar. so you have the president saying one thing, but those in the house and senate, the republican leaders, saying something completely different. >> shannon: yeah, they think this is going to be all about spending ab tha

that flow from that. as you know, after the debt ceiling was resolved in the summer of 2011, america's credit rating was downgraded. johningler was the republican governor of michigan and said the following. he said this is to bloomberg news. it's a terribly blunt, clumsy instrument to try to use. it's not a good weapon for anything except destroying our own credit rating. so i understand your views about spending, and we can continue on that. but just as a matter of how you try to force those spending cuts, you heard the president. he said he will not negotiate over increasing the debt ceiling. you're saying despite whatever the business community thinks, you may have to push it to the brink once again. >> what we're seeing here is the problem, the biggest problem confronting the country, is our excessive spending. if we're not going to deal with it now, when are we going to deal with it? we have watched the government explode over the last four years. we've dealt with the revenue issue. now the question is, will the president lead? you know, why should we have to be bringing him to

. we are going to see only cuts as sort of an agreement around this debt ceiling. so does that impact certain sectors and earnings? >> maybe. but we're a wash in liquidity again. we're in that type of market. >> yes. >> i think the economy is going to end up being far stronger than people realize. that will take over and overtake the fiscal austerity. however we get there, i don't think we're going to do europe in terms of austerity. we're not doing greece. these guys are not ready to do that type of deal. i doubt the president will get a trillion dollars in tax increases and in spending cuts. >> we'll leave it there guys. final word, jack. go ahead. >> how we get there doesn't matter much. over the weekend they're going after the energy industry. whether they can get that done or not. that's to be determined. but there's some real sector implications as to how we see this austerity measures coming together. >> good point. thanks, gentlemen. we appreciate it. we'll be watching the markets ahead of earnings for sure. >>> more than 250 retail executives rub elbows at the womens summit i
